Homophobic Deputies will demand a ban on the distribution of Brokeback Mountain in Russia!

"Brokeback Mountain"

2006/01/25. Aleksandr Chuyev, a State Deputy from the faction "Rodina(Fatherland)" opposed wide distribution of Ang Lees film "Brokeback Mountain" in Russia. He called out to have the film banned or to limit its distribution.

"If the film is widely spread throughout Russia, I, as a Deputy of the State Duma, will demand that it be severely limited. I have already added changes to a bill in the Duma concerning a ban on propagating homosexuality. If I need to do it again, I will," stated Deputy Chuyev.
